Are you on the lookout for clinical supervision?

We have several Board Approved Psychology Supervisors and clinical supervisors on our team who are passionate about providing support to psychologists, social workers, counsellors, therapists and psychotherapists. They provide clinical supervision services in Melbourne and Australia-wide via Telehealth.

Depending on your needs, preferences and goals, our supervisors will tailor an approach that feels right for you. Each of our psychology supervisors bring their own unique style to the clinical supervision process, but they all believe in the importance of providing a space that is safe, supportive and encouraging.

Find out more about our supervisors

Much like finding the right therapist as a client, the match between you and your supervisor is key. We believe the most effective way to get to know whether a potential supervisor is the right fit for you is by having an initial session together. This first session is an important opportunity to get to know a potential supervisor’s style and to discuss what it is that you’re hoping to get out of supervision. Of course, before booking this session you will want to get a sense of each of our supervisors – which you can do below.
